Laser vs Surface Procedure

  • Lasik offers rapid recovery of vision – most people can return to normal lifestyle within forty eight (48) hours.
  • Both eyes can be operated on in one session.
  • Disadvantages of Lasik include some weakening of the cornea and complications arisingfrom the creation of a flap or later flap movement.
  • Surface procedures take longer to heal and are more painful than Lasik.
  • They also have a risk of long term haziness in the cornea.
